1. First exercise lay on the floor and lift your leg as high as you can. Do this 10 times for each leg and do 3 sets of these I try to do this twice a day especially when my knees are bothering me.
2. Sit up position- while sitting on the floor with your legs out in front of you, put loop on band around foot and bring your knee to your chest holding the other ends of the bands to support your leg. Do this ten times for each leg doing 3 sets.
3. Range of motion- lay on floor with loop around foot and bring your knee to your chest and then stretch out leg do this 10 times for each leg doing 3 sets. When I first did this I got weird looks from Frankie especially using his leash.
4. I call this the torture move lay on your stomach with loop around foot and pull the foot over your back and hold for 15-20 seconds. Only do 2 sets.
What all this does is flush out fluids and strengthens muscle tissue. Be careful when trying this at home especially if borrowing leash from pet they might bite you. I got nipped because he wanted his leash back.
